Who are we?
Portlethen Primary Together is a group of parents and carers who work together with staff to help our pupils have the best school experience they can.
What do we do?
We provide a voice for parents and carers on issues that are important to us and our children, and we support the school in developing strong home/school partnerships.
Parents and carers are the most important influence throughout a child’s education and family involvement in learning can and does make a real difference to our children’s achievements.
We raise funds to provide additional resources and activities, and we hold social events for pupils and families.
Here’s a snapshot of some of the things we’ve been up to over the past few years, pre and during covid restrictions:
- Kept families up to date during school closures and signposted to various resources and support available
- Contributed funds towards buying new ipads, sumdog licence, vimeo licence, charanga music licence
- Lead a successful campaign against rezoning new houses to Portlethen School
- Been involved in school improvement planning, school inspection, and school policy making
- Set up a pre-loved school clothing shop
- Run school fayres and termly discos
- Contributed funds to buses for school panto and Abernethy residential trip
- Raised money for playground improvements, including the MUGA
How can you get involved?
We hold open meetings at least once a term, which all members of the school community are welcome to attend. PPT is run by a committee of parents and carers and the positions of chair, vice-chair, treasurer and secretary are up for grabs annually in September. The rest of the committee have no official responsibilities but get involved in discussions, fundraising and events. We have a group of “Happy to helpers” who we call on when needed. Please get in touch if you’re interested, and join our facebook page for all the latest information.
